Julien Lepièce (Belgium)
Executive Producer of the labels Outnote Records and the Collection "Instinct" at Outhere Records in Belgium. In the music business for more than a decade, Julien Lepièce discovered jazz through the instrument he had played for several years, the drums. Involvement with a variety of bands fed his "jazz-passion" which eventually became so important that he decided to dedicate his professional life to music.
His work on a variety of cultural and musical projects over the years quickly led to professional opportunities with an independent group of recording labels in Belgium, Outhere Music. The diverse positions he has held since, have allowed him to develop a broad understanding of the music industry.
Over the past 10 years, Julien has produced many jazz albums for the labels and collections of the group. He is currently an independent Executive Producer for the Belgian label "Outnote Records", oversees the label\'s "Instinct Collection" and coordinates and promotes the legendary label Hat Hut Records.
Julien holds a Masters in Musicology and an Executive Masters in Management. His thesis which focused on the mix of jazz and ethno-musicology subjects, explores the influence of Indian rhythmical principles on Western jazz.
